@wausaupilot Ugh, the lengths people will go to exclude disabled people is just obscene. (But then, handling #disability might erase some of the exclusivity & profit of a private #school, I guess?)

Anyway, I’m not a Wisc lawyer, so I don’t know about state #law. But except for religious schools, Title III of the #ADA (but not IDEA) also applies to private schools; if they get fed money, 504 does too. So there’s some further enforcement potential there with the right lawyers/case.

So i'm writing an #Ada package with the following implementation, and i have a few questions on design (opinion-based): https://paste.sr.ht/~nytpu/b73d6689a85c42c4fbccb2be2130b2dfa6567f4b
1. should i keep the stream as a discriminant or instead use something like that commented Wrap procedure?
2. should the buffers be dynamically allocated rather than stack-allocated? i'm only thinking because one may want to use large buffers, although it is unlikely to be an issue with modern OS' stack sizes
3. if the buffers do end up being dynamically allocated, should the Buffer_Size be changed to a Set_Buffer_Size procedure instead of a discriminant?

I see all these posts in #Covid groups about folks requesting #ADA accommodations in order to receive medical care in masked settings, and I’m just thinking to myself, why is the burden on US to ask for something medical providers should just be doing anyway for all of their patients?? Why is masking any different than wearing gloves and washing your hands?

Why is our public health system putting the onus onto medically fragile #disabled people? Just fucking WHY???? Maddening.

The #javascript here (a) seems to be wrong (and even obviously prints data in the wrong order; someone please just plain FIX the damn thing, or replace it!) and (b) is in a TERRIBLE language for algorithm conveyance.

I have added #ATS to the languages for which there is a solution to the #RosettaCode #ModularArithmetic task:

Modular arithmetic - Rosetta Code https://rosettacode.org/wiki/Modular_arithmetic#ATS

This task was practically tailor-made for #Ada. :) But ATS lets us easily extend the language to handle modular numbers.

Update: After reading the task language again, I added some more commentary, to point out what I see as a flaw in the task.

This sounds like it could really put districts on notice, when we have glaring signals that students aren’t being served fully.

(This is true because OCaml is an UNSTANDARDIZED language in which they change things.

I used to work on the code of ANT, which was written in OCaml, but I think it would require substantial rework to function with the current compiler.

Standard ML OTOH is a language with a thorough standard, like #Fortran or #Ada. You can write in it today, have your program work practically forever. It’s a deliberate plan. #C nowadays is like that, too.)

But, moreover (and this fact carries over to ATS, that weird mix of extremely high and extremely low levels), you have ACTUAL MACHINE INTEGERS, in the form of the unsigned types.

They take on all values. They are REQUIRED to allow overflow. They do so without imposing any mathematical model, the way #Ada does. They are simply machine integers.

You could about as easily use them for one's-complement as two's.

And so on like that. You are teaching the machine...

“Red Roof Inn – Arrogant and Asinine Example of Ableism”

Red Roof Inn told a disabled employee not to bother applying for a promotion and denied a requested accommodation to remotely attend an informational session about the position.  They told the “well qualified” employee that they “wanted to get the bugs worked out" and ultimately refused the accommodation.

According to the EEOC, the hotel said “it would be a waste of his time to apply for the position because his visual impairment could not be accommodated”.  Red Roof Inn told one news source that it “respects the rights of any individual with a disability” but denied the EEOC’s claims, saying the employee did not attend the meeting about the job opening.

This refusal of “reasonable accomodation” to attend remotely,  was a direct violation of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), per the EEOC.  After all excuses were said and done, the hotel chain settled the matter for $43,188, claiming it wished to avoid “further litigation costs".

One of the worst types of ableist, is the one that does not own it, admitting to the wrong.  No lesson learned,  no change. Arrogance and ignorance are common traits of those that blatantly perpetrate acts of ableism.  Playing “dumb", accompanied by asinine responses to the victims are often the norm, hoping the individual will go away and give up.  Far too often,  they do, leaving inequality, misinformation,  pain and a path to future discrimination in the wake.

The image is from an article linked below reporting on a UPS Ableist Discrimination case in which they paid  $2 million to settle. I have personal experience with ableism in dealings with this company as well.

I have experienced these behaviors many times, even recently from some instance administrators here in the Fediverse.  What kind of protections and policies do some instances have in regard to disabled persons?  One of my upcoming pieces will cover these experiences and how ableism seemed only to be minimalized and ignored.   If this type of piece may bother you, I would suggest doing what much of the general public does in regard to the disability community and ableist discrimination, look the other way.

ALT TEXT: Graphic of stick figure pictograms that are commonly used on public bathroom doors shown on an all white backround, representing the floor or ground.  On the left side are many blue figures both male and female, representing abled people.  On the right side is a single red stick figure pictogram of a wheelchair user representing the disabled population.  The white ground is cracked in the middle of the image, much like an earthquake may separate the earth.

The crack separates the person with disabilities from the rest, much like society as a whole. Just like this illustration, Ableist Discrimination separates many with disabilities from work opportunities, promotion, equal protection, treatment, activities and many other things.  The attitudes and apathy of the general population allows this problem to continue and fester, leaving some disabled individuals isolated, passed over,  lessened and feeling as if they have little worth.

The U.S. Department of Justice continues to enforce #disability rights. Today's press release is about medical offices excluding / discriminating against wheelchair users. Link to consent decree in this press release: "Eye Surgery Practices Agree to Pay $1 Million and End Discriminatory Policies Towards People with Disabilities" https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/eye-surgery-practices-agree-pay-1-million-and-end-discriminatory-policies-towards-people #disabled #ADA

@BrentToderian We need your services in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The mayor and City Council are constantly f$%cking up our road, transportation, and building planning. The latest fiasco is tearing out newly laid ADA-required sidewalks because they made accessibility worse, not better. See "Ann Arbor to undo funky new zigzag sidewalks after negative feedback" here:
